DESCRIPTION

Hi,

This lot is an 1918 Original Hardback Wisden. Presentation from SH Pardon.

This World War One Hardback is very hard to find especially in this condition.

No restoration.

Boards: almost entirely excellent with no bumps, knocks etc to speak off. Just some slight thinning to the cloth around the middle section of the spine, resulting in a slightly lighter brown, and a small mark on the back board, which looks like some gilt has rubbed there. All clearly visible in the photos.

 

Gilt: Excellent on both front board and spine. 

Binding: nice and tight. Hinges are strong, though the paper is thinner in patches on the guttering between the front board and the text block (the guttering at the back of the book is excellent); again, this can clearly be seen in the photo. 

Contents: excellent with no markings other than the presentation on the title page, tears, folds, foxing or annotations, other than the names of previous owners written on the front endpaper and the title page, as shown in the photo.


Overall, a really nice copy.

Buy-it-now.

Apologise for only four photos , more photos are available on request.

Payment: Cheque or BACS (please contact us if from outside the UK)

Postage: Free, worldwide which covers special delivery fully insured & Jiffy Bag.

Happy Collecting.

Cheers

Chris
